My Appearance on the Type of Jack Show

Join the mirth with Jack, Rhyann and myself in our without-a-net colloquium on internet poetry that went on for a couple hours after the recording devices were turned off.

We waxed polemic with glittering generalities on the online poetry world that included some love for my sponsors: Shay's Word, The Storialist, Walking Man, Sojourn(al), Photographs from a White Space and of course Type of Jack (cue right rail, please)...

Thank you Bill.

That was an interesting conversation on poetry and writing.

I liked the portion over revision in poetry. I will revise as I go along but then I know or have found out through the years that any particular piece at any given time is up for revision, even years after. My big problem in revising is not saving the original.

Why did the host want to be more like you and less like himself? That was a bit strange but good comeback with the back handed compliment to his work.

The work of any poet though is in some way diminished by either lack of vocabulary to use or unwillingness to use the tools given, both the heart and truth from the heart and a damn thesaurus.

Also:

1. I never expressed wanting to be less like myself.

2. No backhanded compliments took place.

Jack no offense intended. About the 25-30 minute mark is the portion of the conversation I was referring to.

Be Well
